The Technology Department has undergone some recent changes. We are now the Butler County Educational Service Center Technology Consortium. We are currently serving the technology needs of Monroe City, Monroe Local School District as well as the Educational Service Center. Tony Thornton, who has been with Monroe Local School District is now the Director of Technology for the Consortium; Roger Foust is the Network Administrator; and Beth Waywood is our Applications Coordinator. We also will be employing three Computer Technicians. The design of this new structure will make it possible for us to more efficiently meet the needs of all our clients.
